In Memory of Chad James Lilly

The Story I had the privilege of meeting Chad Lilly during the summer of 2006 when I was invited to go on a study abroad trip to Poland with the Political Science department at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock via professor Jacek Lubecki.  I never have been, and never will be, a PoliSci major, but that's a different story altogether.

Happy Easter 2014!

In honor of the upcoming Easter holiday, I wanted to write a post to wish all of my family, friends, and visitors to this page a joyous holiday.  Easter has always been one of my favorite, and most fun, holidays, especially now that I have children of my own. Some of my fondest memories of Easter come from when I was a very young child living with my parents on Jonquil Street in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Each year the Easter Bunny would bring me chocolate bunny rabbits, marshmallow chicks, and lots of other goodies to eat.  My mother would also…
